President Obama. Get out the Q-Tips. Time to listen to America.
I’m in shock. The results of the election were just announced. Martha Coakley blew out all four tires. Well, no surprise. Maybe I’m not the only one who wondered what the despicable Teddy Kennedy was thinking when his own state voted 60% for Hillary Clinton and 40% for Barack Obama only to have him announce that it was time to “pass the mantle” to Barack Obama. What hubris on the part of all involved to think Coakley was entitled to the seat and didn’t need to campaign for it. Shades of Caroline Kennedy: as in – I’m so bored today, maybe I’ll get a manicure, a pedicure and a senate seat.
I go to bed a happy woman. More to say in the morning.
Imagine. Me. Born into a family of Democrats. Worked the phones for Gore, Kerry & Clinton, yet I am euphoric about the victory of a man, a Republican, against a woman’ right to choose, and the right of gay couples to marry: two things I believe in and wish for with all my heart. Obama. Listen. If you can. I go sleep now. But I’ll try and give you some help in the morning. You can do it. But only if you get out the Q-tips and clean out those big blocked ears of yours.
Sweet dreams for now.
Today, Robert Gibbs, White House press secretary said that President Obama was both surprised and frustrated about the tight race between Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Scott Brown as they battle for the senate seat vacated by Teddy Kennedy.
Whoa! If Obama is surprised, his problem bigger than anyone could imagine. That scene from Barton Fink runs through my mind, the scene where John Goodman leans into John Tuturro’s face and screams:
“you know what your problem is… you… just… don’t… listen!”
- The health insurers, who will be given tens of millions of new customers, newly required by law to purchase their wares
- The gluttonous pharmaceutical corporations, whom you’ve so generously promised that our government, their largest customer, won’t compete or negotiate on drug prices.
- Those states whose clever representatives managed to grab hold of your balls and wouldn’t let go until you promised their states pork packages in exchange for their votes.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is entering the fray in the Massachusetts Senate race. Polls show Democrat Martha Coakley in a close race for the late Edward M. Kennedy’s Senate seat. Biden sent an e-mail as part of a stepped-up effort by Democrats to try to close that gap saying Coakley would be a strong ally of Obama and that Brown wouldn’t stand with Massachusetts voters.
